TIPS AND WARNINGS
Always install the film indoors away from dust, wind and not in direct sunlight.
You need to use plenty of slip solution, i.e. spray bottle with dishwashing detergent when applying the film so that you don’t get air bubbles.
You have to remove the liner from the film very carefully and when handling, don’t crease the film. Once you have removed the lining, don’t let the adhesive stick to the film.
